I admired this film more than I enjoyed watching it. Daniel Day Lewis is a force on screen, as always. He truly is a wonderful actor. It's a most unusual story told in an artful way. But it is slow, and a lot of people won't get it.
Sylvester Stallone has always known how to tell a tight, dramatic story and he proves it again with this film. Look who's talking, but it's a little bloodier than it needed to be, or maybe a lot bloodier. Anyway, it's nice to see Stallone doing what he does well once again. The direction is quite good and Rambo holds up–he looks great for his age. Wish I could say the same.
